Pre-order Purchases

About Pre-Order Purchases

As the North American distributor for Fontana Forni, we not only ship orders from this website, but we also have a dealer network throughout the United States and Canada whom we help stock. If the item you're looking for is out of stock, you may be able to locate it in stock at one of our dealers. Due to this, there are inevitably times when we run out of stock of some of our more popular products. 

Out of stock items are notated in the product description on its product page. Below you will find an ETA (estimated time of arrival) listed of when that product is expected to arrive at our facilities in South Carolina. If the item you want to buy is out of stock, you can pre-order it. This reserves the next available unit on the next arriving container(s). 
This is the quickest way to get an out of stock product. Pre-orders are paid in full, up front. Pre-orders are typically shipped within one to two business days of their arrival at our facility. Lastly, pre-orders are fulfilled in the order in which they are received.

There is currently a shortage of shipping containers as a result of the pandemic. Manufacturers world-wide are struggling to locate shipping containers for export of their products to North America. Unfortunately, Fontana Forni is also being affected by this shortage. Due to this, some of our incoming shipments from Italy may be delayed.
